    I agree with a lot of people here, that he might just not been aware of the boundries. But noone here can determine that for sure.

    Quote from Rai Kerensky »
    First off, I do talk a lot to people, especially new players. I give cards, help with decks, and sometimes give decks away. however, the comment about losing to a girl and about going to your house crossed socially acceptable lines and are very serious red flags. It is likely he is unaware he crossed lines so it is best to clear the air. Talk to the store manager and staff and ask them to sit down and talk to him about that. Do not confront him yourself (you and your wife). That could easily put him on the defensive and he might not be mentally all there and lash out.


    I would talk to him myself, in a non-agressive way to clear why i believe his behaviour was inappropriate, but i am from europe, not the us, so there might be some social diffrences in handling such situations.
    (but i would take it personal if someone had such a problem with me and wouldn´t talk to me themself. it has something to do with my personal view of respekt).





    If this was a normal person, yes, talking to them directly could be fine. However, it is unclear if this a person with a normal mindset and is most likely socially awkward, and it could easily lead to things becoming bad for either side and it would be better if there was an impartial side to talk to other man as to best avoid creating a conflict between the two parties. Also, I am not quite sure how Europeans react in general, but in the United States, it is not out of question for this person to blow up and go violent. I understand your point about it coming off as rude and a personal insult, but in the interest of safety for both parties, it is best for a third party to handle this.

    From what you said, I take him as a socially awkward individual that finds comfort in helping others and feels like he is contributing, something I gather he does not get outside of cards. He might be taking to your wife because it is female positive attention. That does not mean he into your wife, but rather getting positive attention from the opposite sex might be something he is really enjoying. It could easily lead somewhere dangerous, so to be careful and set very clear boundaries.

    All and all, it is likely he is just a socially awkward nice guy, but protect yourself because even if he has the best of intentions, things could get dark very easily. To sum it up, talk to the staff at the store he goes to and let them talk to him. You should not talk to him about that because you do not know how he will react.
